The Bridge from Homelessness to Housing: Welcome One Emergency Shelter

Welcome One Emergency Shelter is the Bridge from Homelessness to Housing and has served those experiencing homelessness since 2006.

For the hundreds of men and women experiencing homelessness in Harford County each year, the only full service, year-round shelter to turn to is Welcome One Emergency Shelter in Belcamp.

Every night 32 men and women are provided the following services at Welcome One:

· Safe emergency shelter, bunk, clean linens, and a locker

· 3 meals daily

· Laundry and shower facilities and necessary supplies

· Case management services to assist residents in securing community resources, develop a plan for community housing, and provide hope for a brighter future.

Welcome One is operated by an experienced staff, hundreds of generous and caring volunteers, and an energetic Board of Directors. Our valuable and vital volunteers and the financial support we receive from local government, community foundations, the business community, churches, civic groups, and individuals make our work of caring for the homeless possible.

Last year Welcome One served 162 people and provided 10,926 nights of shelter. 94% of our residents have incomes less than $20,000 per year and 67% of our residents have chronic physical and/or mental health issues. 105 of 137 residents, 77%, transitioned into temporary or permanent community housing.

You can help by volunteering, donating in kind items we use in the shelter daily or be an Adopt-A-Bed supporter to provide funds to operate the shelter. Contact us for more information:
